-headed approach." a number of senate democrats long-time gun right supporters including joe manchin and mark begich are not ready to support a new assault weapons ban. bret? >> bret: thank you. the top lawmakers in the senate struck a deal over new filibuster rules. agreement will reduce the number of times they can use the delaying tactic on less and impose some time limits. some democrats want to require senators to filibuster in person. that is not part of the deal. does having women in combat roles make good military sense? we talk it over with the fox all-stars when we come back. ♪ so, i'm working on a cistern intake valve, and the guy hands me a locknut wrench. no way! i'm like, what is this, a drainpipe slipknot? wherever your business takes you, nobody keeps you on the rd like progressive commercial auto.

that they face on that front given the fact that joe manchin and others is an "a" rated by the nra, democrat from west virginia. couple weeks ago immediately after newtown, he was quite open. he said everything should be on the table and in some of the things that we've heard him say over the last 24 to 48 hours where he said the idea of an assault weapons ban alone is just not going to stand. it needs to be something comprehensive. appears clear that there is a lot of challenge to that ban being reinstated in congress. >> peter, we're going the ask you to stand by. i'm going to go to the reverend al sharpton, el shultz here in studio with me. gentlemen, i want to show everybody the front page of politico, double trouble, house gop eyes default, and shutdown. ed, as we just heard peter talking about there, the language being used by republicans in washington, d.c. right now. it will be interesting to hear how the president comes out. is this his first volley at getting to sell this to the american people? >> well, i think it's important that the president come out and set the tone of what the par
of the shooting, we saw some key moderate democratic lawmakers like joe manchin come out and say he was open to this conversation. he was open to having a debate about gun control, considering some of these measures. it's unclear whether that's going to be dissipate at all now as we've had more time elapse since the shooting and that emotional momentum may have slowed a little bit. we also see the nra. they're very powerful. still powerful. and they have a lot of allies in congress, not just among the republicans, but also with some democrats. the new senator from north dakota who was out over the weekend certainly doesn't seem open to a lot of these proposals. so it's going to be a legislative challenge for the white house to push forward whatever proposals they develop and get those passed in congress. >> are there people in the house and senate who have sort of cred on both sides they think they can use. we have heard a number of gun owners, people who have ratings with the nra saying things like you don't need an assault weapon to go duck hunting. >> you know, there are some. i think we'
is facing resistance from fellow democrats as well. look at joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, after the tragedy in newtown, he suggested even though he's a more conservative democrat from west virginia he might be supportive of an assault -- a ban on assault weapons and he's now walking that back a bit. senator al franken from minnesota, up for reelection in 2014, a liberal democrat, not conservative democrat. suggested yesterday he wasn't sure about a ban on assault weapons and today he's clarifying in fact he supports what he says is the principle of banning assault weapons, but didn't specifically say he supports legislation to ban those assault weapons. and so, it's interesting, because jay carney at the daily briefing today got a lot of questions of bringing democrats along, he says the president is confident after lobbying, and going out on the road eventually that some of these lawmakers will come along, take a listen. >> he firmly believes they are and he'll be having that covering with republicans and democrats and with americans more broadly. again, i think you've s
joe manchin come on. a very proud member of the nra. with an "a" rating, said it's time for us and the nra to look at ourselves and make shchanome changes. a lot of people thought that might open up a larger discussion. that hasn't necessarily happened. we haven't seen a lot of people line up behind joe manchin to look at the nra and say hey, we need to moderate ourselves or we need to be at least open to some change. so do you think at this moment that this time is different, or has the moment passed in some ways? >> you know, i think we are living in a time when there is slightly a culture of instant amnesia where -- and maybe it's to do with the amount of media we have access to. it's like we gorge ourselves on a story, and then after a few days, it's gone. and that happens, unfortunately, at a policy level but also from a viewer level. and so the urgency seems so intense at the time. and it certainly did -- i was up in newtown for four days at the time, and it seemed like the whole country was focused on this. you had not just manchin, you had senator warner come out and sp
's second-term agenda? >> it's a big challenge. take an issue like gun control. like joe manchin, he said he's opposed to the assault weapons ban and everything obama is doing on gun control. the president wants to get through immigration, gun control. he wants to raise taxes probably again. and the challenge on those issues is, those democrats are, the president doesn't have to run for reelection. but they're worried he'll drag their numbers down. >> what about the people going through the 2014 congressional elections, do they look to the president as being someone who will help them fund-raise? do they rely on him for that or do they move past because he's getting into that lame duck status? >> it totally depends on the member and what kind of house district they represent or the state. except for some extreme cases, democrats representing really red states or obviously republicans, usually when offered the help from the president, they say, yes. the money you get from it is really so good. it's the best find of fund-raiser you can have if you're in a tough race. we'll see if he's popular
